Miyamoto: Pikmin 3 is “well under way”

Oh Miyamoto, you sly dog. You climb up on stage as we hold our breaths, and then ramble on and on until we drop to the ground gasping for air and wake up in the ICU. And as you saunter off the stage with your award in hand, all of our lung-straining effort appears to have been for naught. No megatons. Not even a tiny white flag that says “boom” on it.

As it turns out, though, good things come in small packages – not rambling speeches. One tiny tweet later, Pikmin 3’s back on the map.

“ONM is at the BAFTAs! Miyamoto just told us Pikmin 3 development is ‘well under way,'” tweeted – who else? – ONM.

That sound you just heard? That was the Internet. It’s gone now. Replaced by a smoldering crater. Oh, but 4chan’s still around. Why? Well, as it turns out, cockroaches really do survive nuclear explosions!
